Hey human beings! I don't know if this community is still active... it seems to have slowed or perhaps faded. Regardless, I am a recent college graduate with a BA in History who has recently found a very exciting world of critical theory. So, if there are people still involved here, I am ready and willing to chat it up. My strength is bringing a fairly good grasp of the theories of Rene Girard to the table. I don't know if anyone knows who he is, but I have found resonance with his line of thinking. Right now I'm working on a Girardian view of Beowulf, and coming along nicely. We'll see if it keeps up.
